Duke University professor Mark Anthony Neal's webcast Left of Black has been an amazing resource for me. It has exposed me to research from other fields that I would not typically discover in a timely fashion. I was therefore truly excited to have an opportunity to share my work on this show. What a great conversation!
It originally aired on 12/12/2011 and is available here. My segment begins at 14:00.
Before it aired, I worried that I had not been firm enough in my answer to one of his questions, so I wrote this blog post: "Black Art ≠ Protest Art: A Contrarian View, Indeed."
Doug Dangler of Ohio State's Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing was one of the first people to interview me about Living with Lynching. This was a great experience, especially because it drew some connections to my time as an undergraduate at Ohio Wesleyan University.
30-minute audio-visual interview aired 12/12/2011 and is available HERE.
My book talk at OSU's African American & African Studies Community Extension Center. 11/15/2011
The intense Q&A session after my talk at the Community Extension Center.
So lovely to have Theresa share this moment with me! Her book is now out from Duke UP: Spiritual Mestizaje: Religion, Gender, Race, and Nation in Contemporary Chicana Narrative.
Man, I'm cheesin' hard! Having a ball soaking in the Autumn beauty of the Lehigh Valley. Part of a wonderful visit to Lehigh University, where the fabulous Ed Whitley, scholar of 19th-Century American literature, does his thing! James Braxton Peterson is also there building Africana Studies in remarkable ways. It was an absolute treat to experience their intellectual community. 11/9/2011
Me and Anne after today's lecture at Ohio State. She's a fabulous graduate student who took "Lynching's Literary Legacies" with me a couple years ago. What a joy to share the experience with a student who's been on some of this journey with me. 10/28/2011
